End of Life for Microsoft Azure RemoteApp

What is Microsoft Azure RemoteApp?

Microsoft Azure RemoteApp allows employees to work remotely via any internet-based device, while business applications are run on a Windows server in the Azure cloud.

End-of-Life Announcement: Microsoft Azure RemoteApp

Back in August 2016, Microsoft announced the end-of-life (EOL) of Microsoft Azure RemoteApp. Microsoft also announced that Microsoft Azure RemoteApp would no longer be sold to new customers after October 2016, but they continued supporting their existing customers until August 2017. From then on, Microsoft Azure RemoteApp hasn’t been available.
